Original Travel has visited all the exclusive luxury camps found
on the edge of lagoons or tucked beside the waterways, and each
offers a spectacular Okavango Delta safari holiday experience. The
camps invariably accommodate only a small number of guests at any
one time, ensuring an intimate and personal atmosphere, and each
offers something slightly different in terms of wildlife, scenery
and activities: some areas are renowned for their high
concentration of predators; others offer a blend of desert aridity
One or two luxury camps offer extraordinary
elephant safaris, where guests can explore the Okavango by
riding or walking with these remarkable and intelligent creatures -
a truly unique and memorable experience.
Another camp offers horseback safaris - also a great way of
seeing this unique landscape.
Mobile safaris are also a wonderful option to explore the
region, the camp moves with the game, comfort is not compromised
and the intellectual journey is continued with same guides
throughout the trip.
Depending on the season, game-viewing is also conducted by 4x4
vehicles and guided walks, while during the annual floods, the
narrow waterways of the delta are best explored by traditional
mokoro dugout canoes with experienced guides pointing out the
abundant wildlife, from fish eagles circling above to buffalo
drinking at the water's edge.
